    When I send a photo via MMS, the picture rotates counter-clockwise. Even if I then rotate the image (in gallery) and try to send the rotated image as an MMS, the image will still be rotated counter-clockwise as it was before. Any way to fix this?!

    Some (not all) of my received mms messages also arrive rotated counter-clockwise. WTF?!

    I'm thinking it rotates it with handcent bkuz the picture is too big, but that's an educated guess

    no one has any idea on this? I don't think it's the picture image size.

    mine seems to send MMS pics using the OEM messaging app but not using Handcent. when using Handcent i get the swirling circle forever, that's a shame because i really like the features of Handcent. both apps turn the picture sideways too.

    that's unfortunate bkuz i use handcent as my default messaging app w/o a problem. when i first got the phone i had an issue with rotating pics, but never them not sending. now that's i'm rooted i have no problems with pics at all.

    i was never able to get Handcent to send pics so i tried ChompSMS and it sends pics perfectly and looks just like Handcent.

    I guess you have to just try it bkuz i have a custom Rom & i have no issues with it on either handcent or the default app before i deleted it.

    I've noticed that when I take pictures (with the stock messaging app) in landscape mode it sends them fine, but when I take pics in portrait mode it rotates the pics when I send them.

    yea but people don't always want to take landscape pictures and what if they want to take pictures in portrait mode? Why can't this stupid phone just send a picture how it is without rotating it like every other phone?

    Found this thread while sifting through the forums, I have the same issue with my Epic 4g, and it's been driving me insane since day one.

    I just found out that using a new camera app, camera 360 in my case, fixes this problem. It must be an issue with the stock camera app.

    Since we're on the topic of cameras, I miss being able to tap and focus on a subject like the Vibrant, I don't like pressing the shutter button to get a focus and then take a picture, I'd like to pre-focus in a manner of speaking. Any advice to a new Nexus owner? Thanks!
